You are invited to Steanbow Farm to join us for the launch of Mike and Neil Christensen’s tenure as new monitor farmers.

We look forward to welcoming you to a well-known and respected family operation for an introductory farm tour and to set the scene for the coming three years of arable-related discovery and discussion.

This meeting will cover

  • Farm system introduction and tour – Mike and Neil will outline how the arable enterprise integrates with dairy and poultry on the farm with an associated discussion of machinery and wider policy
  • Crop walk – Farmer manager Alister and Pearce Seeds agronomist Adam North will lead a walk of some of the wheat and other rotational elements
  • SWOT Analysis – Having seen the system this is your chance to feedback on the current state of play and potentially guide subsequent meeting topics and discussions – a frank and open exchange about site-specific and shared (regional) challenges and opportunities

Registration and light refreshments will be available from 3:30pm with the programme commencing at 4:00pm. A BBQ supper will be provided from around 6:30pm.

BASIS and NRoSO points will be available for attendees.

The event is free to attend, but please book a place to allow us to cater accordingly.
